Came here expecting a bigger museum and the chance to go on a tour. We were wrong. The vistor center in the brewery is not very big, meaning there is not much to see and do. It is more of a shop and a bar...More

Great selection of real ales. My favorite is definitely Henry’s. Watching the shire horses delivering beer was an added bonus.

Dogs are allowed in the Visitor Centre but are not permitted on Brewery tours or in The Harness Room Bar (the Visitor Centre has plenty of seating & drinks are served there too).
